SKU: B000014585 Categories: ,


For centuries, Japanese artists have created block-printed illustrations and patterns that evoke their rich cultural heritage and deep appreciation of beauty in art and nature. Block printing has long been used as a relatively quick and inexpensive yet sophisticated method of adding ornamentation to paper and fabric. Block-print artists create individual prints of artworks or written texts, as well as covers and decorative endpapers for books and music scores. Block-print designs vary widely in subject matter, style, and colouration, depending on country and period of origin. The prints reproduced in this boxed notecard assortment are fine examples of Japanese block prints produced from the 18th to the 20th century. Contains five each of the following notecards: Japanese Maple Leaves Hydrangeas and Butterflies Chrysanthemums Vines

• 20 blank notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box
